Compassion for the animal comes first and the relief of stress and distress from disease or simple “fear” of the visit to the vet is our first goal. We then address the issues that bring you to us. Be it the annual examination and vaccinations, or illness or injury, you will be given the best evaluation and assessment that it possible and then we, together, decide what course of action to take next. Your input is the most important information we can ues to help you make the important decisions. So, just as we will not hesitate to be honest with you, you must be honest with us. Both you and your pet will benefit from that relationship and we will be able to provide you with the best of care for your pet.
